One thing as clear as the trash washed up on this isolated beach was the half dozen reef sharks we saw were there should have been a whole hell of a lot more.
I never felt a twinge of threat watching these placid animals circle below the Sea Dragon. Sure, it was exhilarating to be in the water with them. I'd never swum with reef sharks before. But they showed only curious and calm behavior toward us. It was one of my favorite experiences of our entire expedition.
